CCMC 196

Good morning everyone! I'm here with the latest challenge from the ladies at Create with Connie and Mary! This week we are being challenged with a sketch. Take a look at this fun sketch!

Lots of fun elements on this sketch! I had fun trying to figure out what to do. Take a look at my creation!

I knew that I wanted to use the new Summer Smooches promotional products. I took a card base of Tangerine Tango and added a piece of the Summer Smooches designer paper and then a strip of Lucky Limeade that was run through the Big Shot with the Tasteful Trim die. Then I stamped the image from Bright Blossoms with Tangerine Tango, Lucky Limeade and Daffodil Delight markers onto a 1 3/4" Whisper White circle. The upper blossom was stamped in Tangerine Tango, cut out and then popped up. This circle is adhered to a Tangerine Tango circle that was die cut with the circles #2 die. I used the doily sizzlet die to cut the doily out of Whisper White. I then clipped away part of the doily to make a smaller doily. I popped the circles up onto the doily and then popped the doily up onto the card. I stamped the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes onto a strip of Whisper White and flagged one end. This is adhered to the circle element. I tied a piece of Lucky Limeade ruffled ribbon to a paper clip and then the clip is fixed to the circle element. I added three rhinestones and called it good - lol!
